"Meisel and Annie Leibovitz. Oh no big deal. And maybe three hair and makeup people. I mean, it was a tiny tiny Boutique agency and You know, again I was still so naive and really was not connected in the fashion industry at all, but I was making enough money off. That I needed help. And I knew that with the negotiating, with the negotiating, right? Because I was definitely being taken advantage, of course, Advantage off in my name being so naive. Of course, I mean I love cats but he was a business person and definitely knew what he was doing and giving that money. But anyway, I went to see them and they took me and in New York at that time. If you had art and commerce and test your name, that's all you forget it. Here I made. And so that really that changed things now. But no I'm checking in on your your self-worth here. Did this not validate you. How were you feeling at this point? Did this not? I was still awfully insecure. Isn't that Wild against Iraq? Well, what I've always said this is probably not the most healthy thing is, but I try to be transparent because I I always thought that when I do something like this, there are young makeup artists or people and not even makeup artist but just people that are trying to find their way. And I think that when somebody is really honest about their story, as uncomfortable as it can be, your hope is that I hope is that somebody's going to hear something that's going to resonate with them and help change the trajectory of of whatever their choices are whatever they're doing course. And so am I, you know, again, even though I was working at area and all of that, I definitely had found a tribe of cool. people but still was struggling to find my way and It definitely. Made me feel accomplished. But with every little accomplishment, I was double. I doubled down and drive so it it just became another layer of people. I didn't want to do is point it wasn't that I was doing it because I felt like I was worthy or that. I felt like I deserved it. It was more. I do not know why. To basically, every person that had ever said you're stupid or you're, you're never going to make it. Or you don't have what it takes or you're not long enough or you're not cute enough or whatever. With every little thing, it was another knife that I could stab in their bathroom. I mean, I hate to say that but it really was not because I felt. So it wasn't because I felt worthy. It was it birthed my, one of my favorite quotes that I think Guy created which was let your haters, be your motivators. And so it was all very rooted in the way that I grew up and being bullied and not feeling apart and not hating myself and all of that. So yes, I mean, I was definitely odd finding my way, but I'm still finding my way. Yeah. So there was never any. Yeah, there was never a moment of, oh, I made. I've still, I felt that way. So my first I did a cover of Seventeen that started, you know, getting some tear sheets and stuff. And then with this photographer, I mean this assistant that was working for seba. Mizell came to me or we were testing and he said, I'm moving back to Brazil and I was like oh my God, no really dead. And he was like, yes, you should come. And I was like why and he had a girlfriend there. Who had worked her way up in magazines and there was a new magazine. This is before I still explosion.

"A working makeup artist. As you know. Bobby tool bah unita toolbox where you're going to put your makeup. I know but it wasn't like a tackle box though. I mean that was so heavy and bulk wasn't anyways of course i got all those things and i got some crappy car. I borrowed money from my great aunt. Rita to get this fiat spyder. That always broke down. And i had my director's chair in my things in the back. In the night. They told us ed joe blasco to go to the american film and look for work so i signed myself up for deferred payment movie where identity was hired to do. Were drogue hair makeup. I think i did. Some form of continuity now is like i kind of job that you know doing multiple people's make up but i remember when i first started hearing about you. I was still a working makeup artist. But i was more into the brand at the time and so my freelance career. Kind of got behind me and i. I never wanted to let it go. But i had to because i just didn't have time anytime anyone called for a job. I couldn't commit to it or i was busy. But i remember. I started seeing your name in harper's bazaar and it was like gucci gucci gucci. Molly who the hell is gucci. Like your rise was really quick and you. You have a lot of enviable clients and fashion shows. What were some of the early big things where you're like. Alright i've arrived. And how did you get them so. I don't know that. I ever really acknowledged that feeling. I have a ride. I felt like it was constantly evolving. You know and. I'm sure you can relate to that feeling as a freelance makeup artist. But i i had started in la. When i lived there i had started to meet people. Such as spike jones in. I was doing a lot of music videos and commercials with him and he was very loyal to his team. In once i joined the crew. That was it i was always asked to. Do you know those videos in all those things in. That was really fun. We just had so much fun. And it was so creative in terms of the concept. Then i simultaneously met bruce weber and annie leibovitz. And it all happened through talk. Refer name paul jasmin. Who is this wonderful photographer. Who lives in la. So i ended up doing a lot of italian vogue. And things like that with bruce and anti hired me i was working at a special effects lab called todd masters in the valley so because i wanted to learn everything i could i just wanted to soak up. Get as much time in the saddle. They possibly could in terms of experience. So i wanted to learn to do special effects and and Cy worked at todd masters. And i had a terrible headache everyday because of the resin and all the chemicals but then they were hired to do shoot with For vanity fair with anne and create. A puddle. Of mudd. And laurie goldstein. Stylist was on that shoe in. She ended up. You know fast forward. I worked for another time assisting paul star on a vanity. Fair shoot cool. That's a that's a a big break your also your highlights include all these cool celebrities that you are friends with. So how did you get in this. Like cool circle of hollywood it girls. Well i back to spike. You know it. All kind of was a puzzle. That sort of like just got you know fell into place But going back to spike jones. He asked me will i. I did this movie called being john malkovich. I love that movie. Buffalo sixty six was first and that was like necessarily a fun experience but it was. I think cool in hindsight to have done it. And i was friends with christina. Ricci and i did that. That was a month in buffalo and then spike gas me. If i would do. This movie called being john malkovich. And i said i'm not really that interested in movies. It wasn't fun. I didn't you know i didn't really like experience. And he said but this one's going to be different so of course he. He ended up convincing me. And i became very good friends with cameron diaz and after we we wrapped the movie she said. How would you like to come to new york with me and do some shoots and saturday night. Live and high thought i. That's when i was like. Are you serious. I thought i'd died and gone to heaven so i ended up going to new york with her. She mentioned my name on letterman. Because i did this blue eye shadow and she said my makeup artists. Us monday because he was asking about the blue eye shadow. And then. I did a cover of harper's bazaar with patrick dementia with her and that was my first big editorial cover on a big actress. And you've done you've done a lot i mean. Are you still actively working as a makeup ours. I know right now. There's shoots are starting to happen again. How are you handling all that. Yeah i mean. I'm i'm fortunate to have clients. That are very loyal. That i would always you know. Say yes to but i. I don't however want to travel really you know. At the moment. I may be able to be kind of convinced but at the moment i don't really getting on an airplane to la which is where most of the live. But i work with you.

to do to be semi productive during this time master class now I brought up Bob Eiger because he gave a fascinating interview with variety in the Wall Street journal yesterday and and another podcast talking about what they do the what the Disney parks could possibly look like when they re open which out we were wondering that's with a new episode of two very godfathers is about what is going to be the normal until a vaccine comes around because you know the the reality is the parks will re open I mean the parks are going to reopen probably I would gas within three months and that's going to be way before we have a vaccine improbably way before we get any type of treatment to lessen the effects of the corona virus so what is it gonna be like you are a are people gonna want to go to a park a theme park with thousands of people around them and if so how is Disney gonna protect folks well he mentioned what they already do on cruise ships and that is biometric temperature taking all wow is that fascinating can yeah so when they come to the park they are gonna get their temperature taken yeah now is it full proof no because some a symptomatic people you know they don't have the temperature bought he parlayed it he did the parallel he said look you know we didn't really we didn't do bad checks or metal detectors before nine eleven and he's like and and but after that reality changes guests expect you to keep them safe and they will put up with minor inconveniences and a delay in getting into the parks if they feel safe and again they've already they're already doing this on Disney cruise line's this is nothing new for the Disney cruise lines but I thought hell I'll do it I don't care I mean if it's biometric yeah do it hi I'm kind of shocked that more advanced didn't do this already I mean we have the technology again it's not full proof but as a as a frequent gore of the parks I'm telling you it would make me feel safer I wonder how far away we are from fool proof on the spot right now tasks like checking your blood sugar can't diabetics they can do that will pretty much instantly right okay yeah that like to travel but yeah yes so as soon as we get those I'm guessing that virtually everything will be opened it's not while I'm just throwing this out here is it an invasion of people's privacy to check their temperature question allow them to come into a public that is of I don't know I don't think people are paying for that in there they are located in the heart of the yeah if you are doing this now you would have to be voluntary yeah yeah what it is I guess don it's a great question I guess it's the same thing of girls are going through your purse I mean that's it you can't get much more personal than going through a purse of your personal belongings in your you know what I mean but yet I can definitely be a deterrent for people but yeah yeah forget it I'm not doing that I think don is dead on right though if it's not voluntary then it certainly is an invasion of privacy is it not well I would need to be mandatory you can't have some people check their temperature and some not well I think the whole act of I I'm not a lawyer I just play one on TV I think the whole act of paying a ticket paying for a ticket to go into a private business yeah it's not of the day your your rights are you know you're making a voluntary dis decision you're making a voluntary decision to pay for that ticket in in though and then then the small print of that ticket it will probably say you will get your bags checked and you will be screened and you will get your temperature taken so if you make the decision the conscious decision to pay for that ticket I think you negate any lead you know any recourse but what is it what if it moves on to a blood test then I don't think people do that I think that's invasive yeah yeah I think that's a little invasive on because they already have the biometric scanners now for your fingerprint so if it also does temperature taking or corona virus yeah maybe to specifically test for that but I don't use a family that's why this I'm glad John donne brother because it's fascinating I mean I I don't really care but I but lex to your point I can see it being a deterrent for folks yeah hello there are a lot of people who will be like I'm not doing that no but I don't think that they need to worry about people coming to the parks in making money you know I think people are still going to go into I I think that they'll be a small amount of people say they don't want to and you know that's that would be their choice I'm really I you know obviously I I will go back on being very on chrome I could be going back anytime soon but I will go back and I am going to be so fascinated to see what the crowds are like what percentage of people will be freaked out for two three years until we get a vaccine you know hopefully yeah please please Jesus let it be a year year and a half on the short term

Through the eyes of Annie Leibovitz
"From the Mon broadcast center at KP. See see this is the frame, I'm John horn on today's show what the cancellation of Pearvel shows on Netflix might mean for the future of the TV business then from antiwar demonstrations to Arnold Schwarzenegger, riding horseback. Any Vits has photographed at all we walked through a new exhibit of her early work was not a good photojournaling. So I was going to have to tell more my story from my point of view and left journalism behind eventually turned to portraiture because it was a way of having real licensed to do what you wanted in a photograph and the country swing band asleep at the wheel is still rolling along fifty years after its founding all that coming up on the frame. With so many new players jumping into the streaming game including Disney, apple and Warner media. Twenty nineteen is likely to bring some big changes to the TV business. We called up Daniel Feinberg a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter to talk about what the future could look like to TV viewers. He's just finished covering two weeks of presentations from broadcast networks cable channels and streaming services at the television critics association meetings. We started with the news from earlier this week that net flicks. His canceling Jessica Jones and the punisher to marvel shows which not coincidentally are also Disney properties. There is no question that we are on the brink of some sort of key transition point. And regardless of what you choose to call it, whether you want to call it these streaming wars or the road to new cable, or whatever you wanted describe it as there are things that are changing that are going to dramatically reshape what the media landscape look. In five years in the same way that five years ago, it looked completely different. And I think that there's no question that the cancellation of the marvel shows on Netflix is a. Assign a gesture in a certain direction because these were very high profile shows for Netflix when they premiered and they were part of a big programming strategy. And now, suddenly all of the marvel properties are really part of aid Disney, plus or a Disney marvel streaming strategy, and so they don't fit with Netflix anymore. And I think that you're gonna see something with the tug of war over something like friends, I think that we are only at the beginning of what is going to be probably the biggest story in where television is going in the next year and a half probably. And that is basically that the people who create those shows used to see companies like Netflix as a source of ancillary revenue and now they see streaming services as direct competitors. So they're trying to pull their content back at their launching their own streaming services. Is that the bigger picture here? I think that is definitely the bigger picture. And all of the things that the Netflix and Hulu have kind of taken for granted as the foundation of their. Business model, you know, the for whatever we want to say about the apparently twelve billion dollars that Netflix last year poured into original programming acquired content is still a major portion of what people actually stream on Netflix. Whether it's whether it's friends, whether it's the office, whether it's all of the CW shows, and that's great for Netflix because it allows net flicks to have that kind of foundation, but it, but it's also a business that the people who actually own those programs want to be in. And so is Netflix original programming is it enough if suddenly the studio start taking away all of their prestige programs. Yeah. I don't know. Let's talk about a couple of new programs one that's on Netflix. It's called Russian doll and one on Hulu called Penn. Fifteen. These are shows that seem to be getting a lot of attention. Are they worth checking out? And how are they doing so far? I think they're absolutely were checking out, and I think we had absolutely no idea how either one of them is doing. Let's look says not put out a press release boasting that forty million people in some form or another have watched Russian doll. So I don't know all I know is that it's a really good show. It's a really smart show. It's a show that plays around with with format and with tone, and with style in very impressive ways. So Russian dolls. Definitely we're checking out, and I think Penn fifteen on Hulu is is a lot of fun to gimmick is the two co creators are basically playing junior high versions of themselves. Devil dis her last night at camp. How was even possible? I don't know what happened in the middle of her sleep. That's so unfair that happens to me surrounded by actual preteen and teen actors, and it's it's a really good show about the awkwardness of being a teenager. That's maybe aimed at older viewers who survived those years. I wanna talk about a couple of other shows that might be worth talking about FOX has a series called proven innocent pop has a series called flack and DC universe has a series called doom patrol or any of those shows are other things that you've seen jumping out in terms of midseason or early start shows that are coming out either. Now, or very soon one of the shows that if you've watched any BC in the past couple of weeks, and you're going to see as we move towards the Oscars this weekend that is getting a lot of buzz for ABC as whiskey cavalier whiskey cavalier. One of our best agents. I intelligence proven to be a huge asset to the bureau. You and your fiance recently parted ways. Yes, we did mutual most commercial, but I'm totally fine with it. We have the footage. How? It's a show that I would say succeeds at its goals, and that's something that I wouldn't necessarily say about say proven innocent, which is a very very run of the mill entirely forgettable legal procedural at the very least whiskey cavalier is pretty people Scott fully and learn Cohen or the stars are attractive and fun. And they're having a good time. It was shot in Europe. And it makes actual good use of European locations. It's got all of the depth of a very very shallow puddle. But on the other hand, it's fun. And it's the same with with DC universe is doomed patrol, which is kind of quirky kind of odd and of vast improvement over DC universe's, I live action show which was titans, which was all gloomy and glum and unpleasant. So there's something to be said for improvement one of the other things that happens at the as is that critics get sneak peeks, maybe it's some footage. Maybe it's a pilot of a show. That's not going to be on for a couple of months. Is there anything that you and your colleagues? Saw that might not be coming out immediately. But that you're really interested in seeing what more there is the series. Well, I definitely can't review. The one episode I've seen of FX Fosse Verdon, but I can tell you that that show which starts Sam Rockwell, and Michelle Williams is definitely going to be worth one that I'm looking forward to checking out. It's the story of Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon. And so there's a lot of fifty sixty seventies cinematic, and Broadway and musical references and dancing and choreography. And I'm not gonna say anything more than I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes. Daniel Feinberg is a TV critic for the Hollywood reporter. He is also the president of the television critics association Daniel, thanks for your time and your insight. Thank you for having me.

"Garrett. You bet. We were in this'll over eastern in April and highlight of our trip, but being Trump any or Good Friday, we were there. We saw the procession of the mystery did this where they have the sculptures depicting the passion of Christ which are carried on these beautifully decorated slapped forms with like candles and flowers, and it's all carried on the shoulders of the men of the town, and it looks an absolute spectacle. You know, if you could picture you have like these beautiful sculptures, and you have the sounds of bands playing and choir singing and people solemnly praying. And and then you have to send the candles and the flowers and mixed with ocean air and the sunsetting parade wines around town and all the backdrop of this dutiful or rope town by the ocean. We was absolutely spectacular. I mean, we definitely will not forget this exp. For the rest of our life. I think it you sound like a travel writer that was beautiful and you know, I was there in trapping under same day on Good Friday. That's amazing that it was a you described it perfectly everything sort of sways from left to, right the guys marching with the with the float on holding, and then they slowly go left. I'm going left and right right now and all of the the people who gathered around they seem to go left. And right also, the whole place was mesmerized as Good Friday was remembered. I just thought it was one of the greatest spectacles I had seen. You can go any day of the year and visit the church and see those the procession of the mysteries, but to see them extra taken out of their stalls at the church and brought through the city. And as you mentioned, it goes for like all day and twenty twenty. Twenty funeral music that they played the whole time. It's a funeral and play that very sad music, and they sway to the music and people come in. They they take over for each other. Oh, yeah. Yeah, it's really neat. The whole involved, I think even if you're not religious to seeing like the effort that it takes like put on an event like this year after year for like, what is it like more hundred years into lay rich example of the dog. I love it and the thought that people gather on whether they're religious are not in be touched by it. It's a beautiful thing to Moscow. Yeah, I agree. Actually, they do the preparation of this one year before. I mean, we have this kind of a congregations, you know, and the each congregational tried to do the best the best call to the best of Megyn.

Much Sicily's our destination right now on travel with Rick steves. Our travel expert guides are native born, tomato pun and Sarah murder, who's helping me write a new guidebook to Sisley for next year. Sarah. When you're thinking about Sisley by the one great side that didn't make it onto Moscow's greatest hits was mount EDNA. The volcano now is such a wonderful sight. It's actually the top tourist destination in Sicily. They call it mama at that because she sort of is the mother of the island, and she affects so much of their soil and their atmosphere. And if you fly into Catania, she's the first thing you see and she's always steaming and putting on a beautiful show. Almost always even if she's not arresting and to experience as a tourist, you can obviously see her from Tara Meena. You can see from Catania just view, but you can actually get up close and personal, and there's a couple of different ways you can do it. You can take a car if you have one and drive up to a really easy area where you can drop your car into a nice little stroll around craters. Another thing you can do from that same location. If you're more adventurous. Take a cable car up to a higher elevation where you get onto four by four vehicles and they will take you to the summit. So that's an all day experience you can do. There are tourists that do that kind of thing. And if you're not really a person who's into hiking or craters, but you want to get a little more elegant experience of mama at now. You can taste the fruits of her labors, and you can do sort of a wine tour. The north face of Aetna is sort of a hot spot. I'd call it the Napa Valley of Sicily, near a town called run that, so you can go out there and visit wineries and beautiful restaurants, and it's a little bit more of a lazy sort of easy going way to experience that. Nah, she's a wonderful creature. Really, you can't speak about the mountain as living living things. Yeah, and they refer to it as almost a person really doesn't character. So Sisley is a hut destination. It's a work in progress multidimensional and it's got lots to offer. We've been talking with Murdoch and muscle Punto about Sicily. Let's just close with one favorite quintessentially Cecilia experie-. That you'd want to share with one of your travelers if you're guiding them around? Sicily. My favorite thing to do is actually into Mazas hometown, and I ran into him doing this very thing this past fall is there's a little bar called the bamboo entire Amina, and I have lovely memories taking my my son there. We sat out there and it's Grenada bar and that's something they have for breakfast, and you can have a dozen different flavors, they'll pilot in your glass kind of slushy or like, yeah, kind of like a slushies and it's flavors like almond and chocolate and the lira him like a Sunday put a big doll of whip cream. But here's the weird part for Americans. They serve it with a warm brioche egged button and you take that new dip it in or you pile the Grenada inside the frozen. Grenada, it sounds gross, I know. But it's so this counting for breakfast? Yes, I know. And every single day we rented an apartment next door to the bam bar and everyday my child when he was nine, he would get up early and go over and get two of us cappuccinos and big Renita to share. So that's my favorite thing to do in. Nutrition's Sealion style and tomato. Yeah, my favorite little. I mean, it's just to sit always in Meena in the main square in which people which people know doing the passage outta the parade. This is a great way to understand the culture. This is the way great way also on the sense to see them. Just a simple thing. I mean, you're soloist very reach about this kind of experience. So the passage watching people having the passage in the main course. Oh, you guys are fantastic, Sarah and Tomasso milligrams, and I'll see you in chillier Cecilia grad. Got Santa Clarita.

We're heading to one of Europe's most interesting islands next and taking your calls for our travel experts on visiting Sicily, where at eight, seven, seven, three, three, seven, four to five on travel with Rick steves. It took me seven trips to Italy before I discovered the warmth end delights of the island of Sicily. I'd say the silliest tie with Irish as the friendliest people I've met in Europe, help us get acquainted with the highlights Sisley we're joined now by two certified tour guide experts to the island local boy Tomas o. Punti and seven Murdoch welcome John. Thanks for joining us to my. So if you were to describe for an American or Canadian hidden off to Sicily the best twelve days to enjoy your homeland, what would you do very quickly in twelve days. So stop the first from Palermo when you see this sixteen different domination that dominated Sicily, it's all a concentration, all of the cultures, layer cake and Palermo. And then I will go to trap any and then from three panel will go to agree gin and then I of prep is on the far west. And what do you like Trapani? I mean, trop any for many reasonable one because they have the billable salt flat ban. Okay. This is where they would harvest the Saul evaporated from the sea and everybody get that very important. Then from there would go to agree Genta Agrigento gentle. Ya fo the volley of the temples. Those beautiful temple sedating back to the faith, six century before Christ imperfect condition you go, there you said the temple concordia this about this temple was built yesterday two thousand that new looking and from five hundred before Christ. Absolutely. It's reminder that Sicily was a very important part of Greek culture onum. Yeah, it was a Greek colony. I mean, the Greeks arrived in Sicily in seven hundred thirty four beef or cry. Some of the greatest cities of Greece. Ace, five hundred BC were insistently. It'll caso from Gento. Where do we go next? Okay. From ugly, gentle, avid. Go to pizza are marina at the Roman villa Cazalet. So this is different. This is not ancient Greek. This ancient Rome. Remember the layers, the layers, this ancient Roman layer. Yeah. So we go to a beautiful villa that basically was built between the third fourth century Roman time. So three or four hundred after Christ is a Roman and this is a villa. What's so famous about this? The mosaics. I mean when you see those floor mosaics you know shining in the call that beautiful, bring caller or read cholera black color. You know this human figures. This was the home of like a man who sold exotic animals. Yes, exactly. Was probably we don't have evidences, but probably was the family of the emperor of family of them. So was an handing lodge or social function because of the expedition's we have a from Rama Tunisia. So we have many. About that. Okay, but there's all sorts of crazy animals showing in the mosaics. And then from our marina you would go to see it Coosa severed. Coolest Syracuse is the big city is a big seed into south and east part of the island of Sicily were basically we have crate grins because remember Sierra Pusa was in competition with ATMs. Remember the peleponnesian wars that so we have these Palermo too big city, but this has many impressive Greek ruin creek and also am barrack style. And then from there I will go to Catania from Catania tower. Meena telling me not the gem of Cecile and that sort of the romantic resort. Absolutely set on a bluff with the beautiful view over the sea with a famous glee Roman fee of her, it's just beautiful. Yeah. And then finally, and finally, of course, my homeland, the alien islands. This is something that you should not me senior tour of Sicily, especially if you have twelve days. So I would visit the first of all of the island of Selena what the movie the postal was filmed who came or right, and then would visit for sure. The island of Stromboli, which is an active volcano. These are little islands, just a short boat, ride north of east of Sicily. Yeah, and you go there by boat from my from Milazzo. There is a port of Milne's. So you embark? I mean, you bought your both from there and you visit, you can do even daily cushioned from there. Okay. So tomorrow that's a good itinerary. Now, several Murdoch. These are the places to see. What would you say as a tour guide are the most important experiences for a traveler to really appreciate Sicily, as opposed to Italy zone? I think the important experiences are getting to know the people of Sicily. I think the people of Sicily have a really different character and understanding the dominations Tamaz spoke about and the colorful sort of mixture of cultures. I think player Maza great experience even if it's a little bit of a scary cities little intimidating. Once you actually see elegance of it in the combination of the culture. That really adds a lot to your experience. So understanding the melting pot aspect of Sicily in multi-culturalism there, it's a really multicultural society. So the people are definitely a highlight for me. What about organized crime? Because we, we think of the godfather and everything for a traveler today. How does that impact your experience? Not at all. You don't see it at all. It's not something that you will encounter as a tourist, not even a little bit. Does it still survive as they're still sort of absolately sort of like territory isn't a different families have different territory or what? What's the behind if you understood organized crime actually, right now what's going on? Well, it still exists. Definitely. A lot of the organized crime has sort of gentrified in a sense where they've turned themselves into more things like construction companies, or they've invested their money and other kinds of corruption. Instead, it's corruption keping and the real drug kind of mafia that you hear about on television on the radio and so on is more centered around Naples. Actually the Cillian mafia is something that's not as centers that used to be. And really the only place that tourists will encounter the vestiges. Of the Cillian mafia. You'll see in Palermo is really big monument and a mural of fell Conan Bassolino the judges that were assassinated. But that was a turning point in nineteen Ninety-two for Sicily where the population decided that they were done. So when the population turned on the mafia, that really was the beginning of the end for the mafia, dominating the culture. Absolutely. And until then was sort of like Robin Hood and Sisley was ruled for centuries by stupid colonial powers, and this was just a way to survive basically, too. I think there was a sense of hopelessness in a way that there was no way to get rid of that problem, but but the people were galvanized after those judges were assassinated. And so this is not to muscle. You've grown up in Sicily. What change have you seen from a law and order point of view and from just an economy point of view in Sicily, big changes. I mean, I think in these luster, Tennessee, this last decayed. The conham of the island is improved a lot. I mean, we have a big improvement. Okay. We have a lot of the young people that want to emigrate won't to go, especially to impart. To Europe for a better job. But if we consider this point of view, I think that insistently they could work. They could work, especially in the recall -ture in a deadly culture is one of the main economical activity for us. But as you know, young generatio- young people, they don't want to be farmer. So that's why most of the people, you know, they prefer to city. So the, they find a better a better condition of life. I was just in Palermo and I remembered being covered with dirt and grime on the buildings and dark walls. And today it's pedestrian only it's well lit, Walzer clean. There's an energy, Damon, feeling exactly. The big change actually happen when Palermo petitionary was declared UNESCO world, Eric wedge. So the historic centre was given a special protection, the United, the nation at this was up -solutely the moment when that city change it a lot. I mean, you see by you go by night there. That is a lot of passage outta there. The passage in Sicily. His way to do it Sarah when you're in Palermo, how do you make a point to enjoy the passage outta? Oh, the passage to I love going out and enjoying the street food scene. That's one of the things I really enjoy doing either by tour just on my own hopping from place to place in trying a lot of the nibbles. I love the area around TI trauma Cima via Makita, which is the street with all the shops and they've really lit up the streets Palermo. I've been going there for maybe ten years now and I can't even believe it's the same city. Even the last five years I couldn't do their because my memory was so different from what I experienced this year. And when you're thinking about this new relative fluent insists, it feels like good times to what degree is that subsidized by taxpayers from northern Italy, probably quite a bit. And also I think that more and more money is going to Sicily from the European Union, especially as more attention is focused on it. Palermo is a cultural capital. This shared, it's being supported by funds from the EU. So it's a, it's a wonderful time to go to Sicily this travel excuse for talking with several Murdoch, and we're talking to us, oh, Punti. About Sicily or phone number's eight, seven, seven, three, three, three, seven, four to five Lorenzo is calling from Boise, Idaho the Renzo. Thanks for your call. Yeah. Do you have a comment or question about Sicily. I would love to never been into Italy a few times. I've just never made it that far south. Once I get down there is a pretty good transportation to get around. Always. I'm not a big car renter, so I need a way to get her out of these places. And what is the transportation like? And I get trained buses? What? How do people get around on their? I'm writing a book on Sicily right now in this topic, I was just discussing and Sisley can be a little challenging without a car. A car is a lot of fun and it's actually less intimidating than you may think that if you want to go car free, you absolutely can. And I have a really elegant solution for you. If you start on the far west in Trump any fly in there, you can use that as a home base for doing little day-trips in the area there. And that's a little bit more countryside. It's not really urban, then you can head to blame on the bus from Palermo. You can spend two or three days there to Montreal, which is a beautiful cathedral with mosaics. And then from there, it's an easy to our best connection to Catania on the far east. Eastern side, which has an easy airport that's only fifteen minutes from this. Our connection by bus to three hours. Cillian. Our impressive thing I was. I was on a twelve day tour of Sicily, ten or twelve days, and I was struck by how how short the drives are. It's an easy to get around in part because of the tax revenue or the money for infrastructure that comes in from the north that feels like the roads are overbuilt for the traffic. I mean, you've got great freeways for a little island with not a lot of traffic. I never noticed any traffic temps. You can get around easily. And Sarah said, if you don't mind driving, it's a great place to drive. I'd recommend doing it by car. But if you insist, of course there's public transit, you'd wanna let the existing transit routes probably help dictate. I think you're turnaround and I would definitely suggest you change the train system does not connect enough and it slow that's important in a lot of countries, Portugal, Ireland, Sicily. We a lot of times, think of train because we traveled in France, Germany, but no buses really work much better to agree. I mean, I agree. I totally, of course there are areas of Sicily where the train connection, good, fully sense. If you go from. Palatable to chief Olu. I mean, we have a when I went ride by train and the trainees about every half an hour when our that's grateful that I mean some aerial Cecilia very well covered because cheifs Lou is a wonderful complements, the bigger cities, and that I have beautiful memories of Jeff Liu as a wonderful, small fishing town basic. Yeah, it is still officiant down. Of course, the tourism is increasing. Still has this kind of beautiful medieval atmosphere of restaurant, fish restaurants. You eat your fish just on the water. Lorenzo. I hope that gives you some ideas on getting excited about booking. Thank you so much for your health. I'm getting excited talking about. Thank you for calling. Happy travels. Thank you. This is traveled, Rick. Steves we're joined by tomorrow Ponti and several Murdoch. We're talking about Sicily.

"To his boyhood home in Indiana, and then on up to Springfield, couldn't find his authentic log cabin, which apparently toured with p. t. Barnum and then found myself sort of didn't quite realize I was doing this at the time. But when I went to photograph Pete, Seeger's log cabin, I think it was sort of thinking the Pete Seeger was are are sort of modern day Abe Lincoln his garage was so cool. Yeah, there is a a workshop in his barn that couldn't help a photograph in its. Very filled with, you know, every little space is taken up with something. It's almost like looking through his ear into his brain. That's right. Exactly. And his grandson told me that what he loved about peace seekers, you know home was that you could put something down and ten years later, you come back and probably be in the same place. Did you call it emotional landscape? Is that the term used any? I guess it's it would have to be imagery that resonated the pull me in that that I, that I felt moved to take a picture without having to think about it too much. Really. It's like intentionally no faces. I mean, I, I would have thought you'd put a face of the people featured, but then on the other hand to show Lincoln's gloves, those gloves actually were in his pocket. The night, he was assassinated at the theater and is actually near. There's a bloodstain on on on one of the things, but you can really what I loved about the gloves. Was that you feel like you're looking at his hands? Yeah, you can. You can feel his hands on all the folds and creases. Now you talked about visiting a lot of homes and some of them worked for others didn't. My thing is Europe. You know, there's a lot of homes in Europe, and a lot of them are just owns of dead people and they just without spirit. But occasionally you walk into a home and it's like they're still there. That's right. Can you talk about a few places that that really felt like the spirit? Was there. Emily Dickinson's house for sure. Not not her house per se with her brother's house was the first one. This led me into this this journey period is that they hadn't really changed anything. I mean, the wallpaper was was writing off the walls, the it was. It was so Victorian I had no idea of Torian meant it was very dark and they were pictures hanging on every single, you know, part of the wall. So that really moved me. I mean, I just you could feel that they were there or had been there. There is a bedroom upstairs where Austin Dickinson son has had died, and it just felt to Erie to walk into it. You know, it's not that it was haunted. Exactly, but it just felt their their presence with almost like like they just stepped out for lunch and Russia's her at the easel or the pens on the desk, or are you take a peek at what are the contents in the drawer? I think the heart of the book is probably the Georgia O'Keefe set of fixtures to actually walk into her studio in ABA q. And and see where she lived and worked. It really did move me to tears. It was very enlivening. There was probably one of the best pictures in the book is, is this photograph of her pastels. Oh yeah, which she made. You can feel like Lincoln's gloves. You can feel her her fingers on this pastels and the range of colors are definitely the the palette, you know, from from New Mexico, you did a lot of extremely close up work, and I think extremely close up has a has a great intimacy. I mean, you look at that close up of Emily Dickinson's only surviving dress and you can understand the the humbleness of the age and the loving stitching that, oh, and into that. I know it's so not my kind of picture and I found myself going in is it feels like a big responsibility to go that close and try to explain yourself any liba is our guest right now on travel with Rick steves in an interview. We haven't heard since it first aired on the show in twenty twelve. She's telling us about a coffee table photo collection. She had. Just released called pilgrimage. The Smithsonian made an exhibit from her collection that toured to local museums around the country any. This is a travel show, and you did clearly did a lot of traveling to put this book together. Just from a listeners point of view, who's dreaming about traveling and wants to have an insight into some of the great homes or inspirational landscapes we're talking about what are three or four of the best homes that you'd recommend for people to be sure to put on their list. We'll concord is sort of like a concord. Massachusetts is just sort of a hotbed of these writers who live together at the same time, Emerson throw and Louise may Alcott, and that's sort of an extraordinary place to go visit. And it's not far from Amherst in New York City is like every blocked there is a historic home. I mean, you know, there are small in house museums, and they're remarkably well preserved. I mean, there's a lot of nineteenth century American history that intimately preserved from the looks of your photographs is that accessible to to every tourist. Is every every photograph in this book is accessible. Absolutely. It is most of these places they either have tours or you can set up an appointment to go. You know, the spiral jetties just sitting out there is all this. You know, it's it's not as his that lands is there. You don't need to take it for Walden pond, you know any when you looked at all of these great and prolific people's homes were you struck by how they decorated. I mean, does that give us much of an insight into their passion in there and their genius? That's that's a funny question because I having visited Monkhouse we're Julia Wolfe, had a writing studio in the back. I was very fortunate they they left me alone in the writing. CO two take pictures, and I took everything off of her desk can photograph the top of her desk and it was like riddled with Markson cigarette burns. And and then I went on to read her husband. Leonard Woolf writes about how Virginia Woolf was extremely messy. So when you look at this desktop, which I photographed in fact, it was kind of almost near squalor. Apparently it was what I understand, but the desk sort of tells you that and just to be there, if if you have a creative spirit and to be in the space of somebody who you really admire that in itself is like a pilgrimage. Actually, that's the name of your book pilgrimage. He's xactly as well. You go to to forge house in in London, and you can't believe you know that it's it's left the way you know it was when when he was live and there is the couch that he did all his analytical, you know sessions on that still there. It's kind of interesting. I mean, it's kind of an eclectic mix. I also went to Graceland. I went to, I had the opportunity to go to Ansel Adams darkroom and to see the dark room still intact. And I, I did have the opportunity photograph Ansel in that dark room in the seventies. So to see the darkened still there and and sort of photograph it as trying was that'd be a pilgrimage for you? Yes. Was this. There's some photographers in here. I like I like to play the piano and I got to go to the little cabin on the fjord that inspired advert, Grieg. I got to see, you know his piano and his view and his desk and the view that inspired him as he wrote. And then when you know his, aren't you close your eyes and you're right there now, that's that's a great description of what can happen. What I hope to encourage. You know, again, this was such a personal project. I, I'm surprised at anyone else's even, you know, looking at it or whatever, but but what I would like to encourage is, is people make their own lists and go off and whatever means something to them. And so of all the of all the visit to made, what was of you that really struck you? Like, wow, I never realized this had such an impact on that person's spirit or creativity. Well, I think that the exercise in Yosemite was was an interesting trial because I, I was with Jean Adams Angels' daughter-in-law. And the first time I went into semi and we woke up in the morning, I was going to go out and photograph the valley, and there were no clouds in the sky, and she Adam said to me, we'll any, you know, Anza would wait three weeks for clouds, you know. So then that's sort of stepping on this path that I wanted to get the valley with clouds in it. I went back actually ten days before the book was supposed to be turned in anyways. It's a lot harder than it looks like. So it was I had a great appreciation for for when you go to that spot where you look down the valley and of course you know, it's it's still with us because of people like Ansel Adams who gave us these images, but it's a mecca. I, I was never there by myself. There was always at least. One photographer and then the day I actually got the the picture I wanted. They were like maybe fifty or sixty photographers there. It is really a mecca for photographers, so beautiful. Then when you get an end to let him sky, I would suppose the photographers come out of the woodwork. Any liebowitz photo collection, pilgrimage features, no faces. But it captures the spirit of dozens of great people who are important to our culture with portraits of where they live and the objects that were part of their everyday life. You'll find more about it with this week's show at Rick steves dot com. Slash radio any. We looked at all of these people's homes and so on. And I'm wondering if any Leib of it was going to go to the home of the woman considered the most celebrated living photographer, your house. What would she find? What would she want to capture in her photo essay? What would they find in your living room? That's a tough question because you know, I having grown up in a military family where I traveled over a couple of years. I actually am a child of the road. I do love to get out and be on the road and hence this this road trip, I grew up driving across this country growing up my fam-. Could afford, you know, hotel rooms in. So we we slept in the car and we drove in, you know, my father was stationed at Fairbanks, Alaska than we drive down to Texas. He you'd be stationed at Texas, and then we in a block, see Mississippi. So I've, I've traveled pretty extensively through this country, and I, my children have have sorta forced me to to settle down, which is not a bad thing. It's a good thing. You know, I think I built my last home for my children and I'm trying this idea of staying put, you know, in giving them a consistent, you know life. But the home I have now is really something for for them to live in. Do you have your favorite photographs hanging around or is it a place where you get away from that and you're not any the great photographer? I don't hang my own photographs in my house. I, I can't afford the art that I really really love it. When my children started drawing early on, I, I love their their work because it seems to me that all we try to do as adults is trying to get back to me. Children in our meaning, and I started hanging their, you know, their work all over the house and my children's drawings and paintings are so magical, so. Wonderful. And when they come home from school with the drawings, I'm I'm framing them. So that's what's in the house is the art work is is my children's. And then I do have a very nice little photography collection of the Tigers. I've always admired of some Lynn Davis's in the living room. I have cardiac Rozan, Robert Frank, an avid on, so that's what that's what the children are growing up with. Who tried to create an a nest, you're trying to settle down? No, I am. I am try. I am trying sure. Look like a woman of the road on your photo in the book here with you in the boots in the back of the pickup there. Yeah, I'm more I am more that person. I, I mean, these road trips for the children. You know, taking, you know the children tonight. Agra falls. And you know, I, I do plan to take them out to do you know the mid west, and that's what I, that's what I've been dying to do is get. Eating them out on the road with me. Maybe they can give the photographer a fresh excuse to look at things they will. They and they did with with this day will all I can't wait to take them out driving to see this country is is is a great country. It was interesting is Annie Oakley in the book is two pages dedicated to photograph her trunk. I love it because, you know, she tried to settle down, but she, she never did she. She lived on the road. There's a Robert frost manuscript. At the the beginning of the of the book that I discovered the Jones library in Amherst. It's it's the poem in miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep in on the dedication page for my children. You know to Sarah Susana Samuel with the idea that we have lots more to do in as you thumb through this book. I'm coming through it right now. What do you see if you just thumb through the book? And you look at the beautiful images that you've collected in this book? What's the bigger picture. Here? Well, I think I didn't quite see it until many of the pictures were hung it as small book signing in New York, and I was looking at them up and I and I realized that it really it really was a search, and the search is not over and you know, don't ask me what I'm searching for, but you know, just to see how people lived and what they did with their lives and people that I cared about and just to collect notes. I mean, I was just thinking about the old faithful picture, which I, it took me two days to get those pictures. Again, I'm thinking about Ansel Adams and what he must have done with early pioneer photographers did when they first went out and discovered these places, wow, these images, tie things together and they keep things alive. They're everywhere. I mean, you know, these small historical places that they give you such residents and give you a lot of insight into who we are and what to do with ourselves next, any liebowitz best wishes with your work. And finding that NIST at home. Thank you. Shoe

"Yes. Oh, yeah, definitely fill gorgeous travel photographer. Thank you so much and best wishes with your photography. Your travels end highlighting the beautiful diversity in humanity on this planet. Thank you, Rick. We have links to Phil's work in the notes for today's show at Rick steves dot com. Slash radio up. Next, any liebowitz tells us what she photographed on a road trip across America from New England to Magara falls Graceland and the old southwest and later we're off to enjoy the photogenic island of Sicily. It's travel with Rick steves. She's who they call unto produce. The official photographs of people like Queen Elizabeth Bill Gates and Barack Obama and leading celebrities and entertainers. But for any liba she needed a road trip to see America in a new light in her book pilgrimage. Any brings us an intimate glimpse into the world of some extraordinary people without even looking at their faces any. Thanks for joining us. Glad to be here. You know, when we think any leave of its, we think faces and expressive bodies and so on, and this book you page through it, there's really not a face in it. What was your goal with this book? Well, it really was a an opportunity for down a different road. It was really an exercise in refilling myself backup. I, I was having a difficult time and you know, I just set out to look for emotional landscape and it started with the photograph I did at Niagara Falls with my children, sort of showing me that picture. And when I saw. What came out of it. It was that picture at Niagara Falls and also the pictures that I took it Emily Dickinson's house in Amherst. That sort of led me to believe that this would be an interesting journey to make a list of places that I've always been interested in or cared about her and just hit the road. Go out on the road and see what emotionally drew me in will. The cover of the book is certainly kind of a minimalist hit the road shot, and it is. It's just Niagara Falls, and it's the front end, the back cover in a collection of mostly homes and intimate little details about where mostly great Americans lived and were inspired. Why did you put Niagara Falls on the cover and the back cover of this book? Well, Niagara Falls is sort of a metaphor for me. I mean, first of all, I, we were on a day trip to Niagara Falls, and I was not having the best time because I was having difficulty with business meetings and and I was on the phone. I was being drawn away to talk on the phone and my children. They were having a pretty good time and they, they just sort of wall Stover to the falls and they were. They were mesmerized. They were looking at the falls and I, I walked up, you know, instead behind them and you know, looked over them and took a few pictures, and that's the cover of the book. So like any good Bob Dylan song, you know if it's either a beginning or an end, you know, you have to sort of decide, you know what you wanna make. I think what I love about the falls is that it's not taken for many special place. It's right on the walkway. This was going to ask you, this is everybody has this feud, but the way you photograph did it. It's got a sound track of its own even though it's just a photograph. Well, it's true with your seventy two, which I had this idea to go back to the seventy valley. And I worked on a Ansel Adams workshop in the eighties, and I remember stumbling across the view looking down the valley. And I, I remember thinking, oh my gosh, this is Angela Adams picture. This is, I guess, you know, almost anyone can take this picture. I'm Rick steves. This is travel with Rick steves. Were speaking with any liba of it any wrote, I'm interested in. How people live and how they do their work and how you translate that visually, whatever that is when I do my portrait work, which does have people in it, you know, I, I'm looking for the same things. I'm looking for the chair that they sat in. I'm looking for the view they looked out on. I've always been more interested in what people do and how they live more than necessarily who they are. So I, I don't really think of this work is being so different for my regular day to day work. He really is the no taking involved is sort of the peripheral vision you have when you when I go to take a portrait, you know, for a good portrait you have and this is what you're so masterful is catching people at ease. How do you catch a home Eddie's. One of the reasons I started the project and decided it was a good idea was that I was looking for a place or something that that resonated an emotional way that drew me and and some places it. It didn't work didn't work at all, and I had to maybe dig deeper or just walk away from it. I I seriously was was looking for Lincoln's, log cabin. I drove the whole heritage trail. I started at his boyhood home in Kentucky in, I'm sorry, his birthplace in Kentucky to

"Portrait's. Now I'm doing more films and I just want him to do what they're doing and I'm filming, but I pretty much. Want them just to be there with the camera. Phil Borges is our guest today on travel with Rick steves. He tells us how photography honors indigenous communities. In this conversation. We recorded a couple years ago. He posts photos and video clips from his storytelling projects at Phil just dot com. That's spelled b. o. r. g.. Phil, how do you go beyond natural lighting? Seems like you've got a son gun going on or something even in daylight when you're taking these photographs is so volved over time. And I started carrying Luma dean lights, which are battery powered and Houston, big umbrella. Now I mostly shoot natural light because he's cameras have gotten so good. The dynamic range is so wide that I can take a picture even of a dark skinned person against a light background, and I'll be able later in light room to impose production to pull out those guys days. You can manage it with the post production. That's right. What we would call Photoshop. I guess I use light room and Photoshop, so you don't need to monitor the light so much with Phil light and all this sort of extra work in the field. That's right. I still bring it along just in case there's a situation that needs it, but less and less all the time. Phil just to talk shop a little bit for our. Suffers that are listening, do use a tripod. What sort of extra gear would you use our? Would you recommend? Right. I very seldomly used a tripod personally. I wanna be able to move quickly. I thought a lot of photographers just swear by a tripod, but you're shots just look perfectly crisp, so you've got enough light to get a crisp shot without a tripod. Yeah. These new cameras cameras that you can shoot up around thirty two hundred ISO. It's incredible when you don't greediness when you have that end much pretty clean. The latest one I've heard about is very clean, and then what's the deal with shooting raw, a lotta people. They see that option. You can shoot raw or high definition are medium definition. So most cameras have a onboard computer that will take the raw data and interpreted. They'll make the contrast what they think it should be and the color correction, what they think it would be. And then they spit out an image in j. pig format, but that's throwing away. Some of the information is so you can go run, come home and do that work after the fact that's the idea. That's right. And you take advantage of that, oh, you bet. I shoot everything in raw as a professional. You shooting raw because you want complete flexibility when you get home to pump up this or saturate that or whatever. Exactly. Interesting. And I love your mastery of depth afield. It seems like you're very aware of what you want out of focus and what you want info. Can you talk about that for him and right? Well, the eye in any photo goes to what's Infocus, what's the lightest and how it's composed. So you can use those tricks to guide the viewer to look at the end. It's still in the composition really adds to the composition and can see what's back there in the background, even though it's out of focus. So you can tell the story of the person's environment are what they're dealing with. How do you help the is pop really important? I think, yeah, if they're looking. Straight at you and usually that the light would help me do that and I can lighten to slightly the white part of the i. impost and make him pop just a little bit more. So you know, I fiddle a lot with my edges. You wrote you want to create a relationship between your audience and the subjects. How do you do that? Just having that direct curious look. And as I say, it's easy to get what these people because they're very curious about me is I looked very different. The very curious about my equipment and I just want them to be projecting outwards towards the audience. So the audience will feel that you're bringing home individuals, individual people. Yeah, I wanted to get them out of the abstraction of their group. I want them to be individuals. We can earn more about your work at Phil Borges dot com. And Phil, what's next for you? What's on your agenda? I'm headed for doper in Nepal, very remote. Region of Nepal right next to most Stang and I'm doing a film on maternal health there. A lot of women die in childbirth and let a baby sti- birth -serily believe your photography can be a force for good. Yes.

"And then I'll call over the interpreter and and let them know what I'm there for what I'm doing. When we think about traveling around the world and photographing people, I would imagine every culture has a different idea of what is beautiful. Do you have a sense of that when you're in a different culture is what is not beautiful from our point of view, but what's beautiful on their terms in terms of human right one of the things that happens quite a bit when I had out these Polaroid's I've given Polaroid's people haven't seen their face and they can't believe it's them. They'll have to have a friend combined look at it and point to it and say, yeah, that's you. There are people on this planet that don't know what they look like. Oh, yeah, that's fascinating. Less and less all the time. Yeah. But yeah, that's interesting. When that happens in terms of beauty, you know, I have this book enduring spirit, which is tribal people and indigenous people all over the world, which I carry with me and I'll take that and I'll let them look it. And they'll look at a say somebody from Irian Jaya say, and I'm in Africa. They might have bones coming out of their nose and a penis scored on and they'll laugh. Oh, jeez, that's the strangest things. How could anybody do that? Here they're sitting there with, you know, lip plate in their in lower lip. That's about six inches in diameter. So you know, we all have our own senses of what's beautiful. But what struck me when I look through your Tabet book was that there was a very fundamental beauty in each subject and it wasn't your standard American Beauty. They were not necessarily beautiful by, you know, advertising standards in the United States. But there is a fundamental beauty that transcended you know how smooth was their complexion. The aware of that when you're, yeah, that's what I'm attracted to. That's what I love taking pictures in the raw, itchy it is. It's just a very natural UN enhanced in any way. You look at it the way we're in Hanson beauty, but it's this beauty that we see in the rough is that a function of the strength of their spirit because sometimes you see somebody, they just go, there is one proud person. There's a person who's on top of things who's fulfilled. Yeah. Yeah, energy come through. Yeah. Oh, yeah, definitely. I don't know. There's something about being close to the earth and in that cycle and you know there's dirt on their face. Beautiful. It's just such a beauty when you are dealing with people in different cultures as of otographer, do you find different people have different fear or reaction to the camera? Some people just can make love with the lens and other people here the enemy. How do you get through that? What are the tab who's? And so, well, first of all, you know, I teach a lot in students are always wondering, how do you break the ice and first of all, you have to be comfortable with yourself in doing it. And that takes a little bit of practice. But I've been in so many different cultures and tribes and you know, I've never heard the term. I'm afraid you're trying to steal my soul to me. That's an a wives tale. Yeah, but you know, it was THEO Pia down on the lower OMO valley with the Mersey tribe for some reason. Zain when I was down there, there was a belief at that time that something would come out of the camera and blind them so they would when I would hold up the camera, they would duck their head. But other than that, you know, I find it much easier to take a picture of a person like this. Then a picture of somebody in our culture in our culture were worried about, okay, am I gonna look too fat, too. All right to this to that they're, they're mostly especially if I'm using a light, they're caught up by, you know, jeez, this is interesting, so their attention isn't on themselves. It's on me and it's an outward directed attention that gives a stronger image. Do you find it helps to give them some business smoke a cigarette, fling prayer wheel around or just be alone with the camera you. Meanwhile the while, taking this picture, I usually let him be alone when I'm doing portrait's.

"When Phil Borges takes out his camera, he knows it can change the way other people while the world I've given Polaroid's people haven't seen their face. They can't believe it stemmed. They'll have to have a friend combined look at it and point through it and say, Yup, that's you. Hi, I'm Rick steves in the hour ahead. Won't hear some creative ideas on how your camera can lead the way in saying, Hello, when famed portrait photographer. Any liba pits designed a cross country road trip. A few years ago. Her goal was to photograph the objects in places of famous Americans. I actually am a child of the road. I do love to get out and be on the road. And hence this road trip will also take time to explore photogenic Sicily, where mount Aetna likes to be the center of attention. She's always steaming and putting on a beautiful show almost always even if she's not erupting faces places and tips for enjoying Sicily. It's all just ahead on travel with Rick steves stay with us. Her photos reveal more than meets the eye in just a bit. We revisit an interview. We enjoyed a few years ago with one of today's most celebrated portrait photographers. Andy LeBron's. She tells us about a cross country road trip. She took to document the objects and places of famous Americans from new views of Emily Dickinson's house in Amherst to Georgia. Oh, keeps desert studio and an amazing cover photo of Bagra falls. Her coffee table book. Pilgrimage lets you look at many American icons in whole new way, and we'll get a taste of what makes Sicily. So photogenic with guides who specialize in showing Americans their favorite places on the island that's coming up in the our head on today's travel with Rick steves. Let's start by meeting the native people of Tibet with the help of documentary photographer. Phil Borges fill is a Mestre, documenting the lives of indigenous people, and he joins us now to tell us about his work, which led him to. Better understand serious challenges thebenz are facing in the land they've inhabited for centuries. His film and photography projects includes a stunning portrait book called Tibet culture on the edge. Phil, thanks for being here. Hi, Rick. Great. To be here feel for you. You wanna make photography. It seems like a force for good in your work. How do you make your photography have an impact on people? What? What's your goal? My goal is to take people that we think is very abstract and part of anonymous group as individuals. So I usually have them looked directly at the camera when I present them in my books and my exhibits. I have a little bio that gives their name their age a little bit about their family, any interesting aspect of their lives. So we can look at them and think of them as just another individual, much like us. So we've done many different books featuring different slices of this world. I'm. The your Tabet culture on the edge book here, and clearly you had interpreter with you when you were doing this work because you interviewed each of your subjects? Yes, always. Do you interview them first and they get comfortable with you and then you're having a better time shooting them? It depends. But what I do typically when I say I'm going into a tribal area. The first thing I do, I bring a polaroid camera with me and I start taking Polaroid's of the kids. It gets everybody loose and you're on their team and it's fun. That's right. And kids are very open all over the world. I mean, they're the same, especially boys for some reason, but they all want to have their polaroid taken. They take those Polaroid's home to their parents are to their little mud huts or wherever and then producing the parents wanted to polaroid. So that's one of the icebreakers I use when going in. But I typically when I meet somebody, I walk up to him and start talking to them because they can read my body language and I'm talking in English. They can't. Understand me pretty soon. They're talking in their language and we're both laughing about it and
